Mostly, I did this just to have fun with the effect that one receives when a video camera is plugged into a television then the image is recorded over the image over the image over the image, et cetera. I had the first three videos from 11 November 2008 (Pentax Optio Z10) and the other videos are from to-day (5 April 2009) with a Panasonic HDC-HS9 (apparently, it's supposed to be high definition). Knowing that I couldn't have you (whomever you may be) just sit there in silence and watch this...

L'Homme Orchestre, 1900, 1m21s Star Film Catalogue Nos. 262-263 In many ways a sequel to The Four Troublesome Heads (Un Homme de têtes, 1898), The One-Man Band ups the ante to a considerable degree by featuring no fewer than seven identically-dressed Georges Méliès playing musical instruments and interacting with one another in remarkably convincing synchronisation. Buster Keaton pulled off a similar trick in The Playhouse (1921) with greater technical polish, but Méliès beat him to the... Topics: Gen X, Georges Méliès, Short Film, Silent Film, Fantasy, Music

A video collage (per se) of the world as seen from the top of the Sears Tower (7 April 2009). I (somewhat poorly) play the music on this too. I might regret typing that though. I think it was the first time I'd ever played "American Pie" the whole way through, and I forgot the bridge for "Chimes of Freedom". But it's better than sitting there and watching this without any music at all isn't it? Topics: Sears Tower, Chicago, Illinois, April, 2009, American Pie, Chimes of Freedom

These two brief clips are all that remain of this lost film of 1914, they were excerpted in the Warner Brother's 1931 Vitaphone short "The Movie Album." The first clip shows the meeting of Helene's terrorist cell with an extra who is NOT Leon Trostky, and the second appears to be the scene of Helene (Clara Kimball Young) and Lennox (Harry T. Morey) visiting the Weletsky's (Earle Williams and Louise Beaudet), with Eulalie Jensen as the angry woman. No sound track. Topics: Silent Films, Lost Films, Anarchists, Russia, Drama
